Cosmetic Surgery

Surgical and non-surgical cosmetic procedures (tummy tucks, nose refinement, liposuction, face lift, breast augmentation, chemical peels, and more) leave swelling, bruising, and redness, as well as the potential for scarring and infection. HBOT has been shown to provide benefits in the post-op recovery period by increasing the oxygen concentration in all body tissue. Cosmetic surgery patients who undergo HBOT recover more quickly and experience less scarring.

Benefits of HBOT for cosmetic surgery include

• Reduces swelling, inflammation and bruising

• Decreases risk of infection at the incision site due to oxygen’s antibacterial effect

• Reduces postoperative pain

• More quickly diminishes redness associated with laser re-surfacing and chemical peels
